How do young children know it is Shabbos? By using their senses to see, smell, taste, touch, and hear things around them. This board book starts with the preparation of special foods for Shabbos, welcoming guests (a Shabbos tradition), lighting the candles, putting on special clothes, the special items on the Shabbos table, and time for families to play together. It ends with Havdalah. Continuing a series for preschoolers, the things that are seen are all labeled and easy to identify. Photographs of adorable children grace the pages, which will further draw pre-readers to the book. All the items are labeled in English, so the book is appropriate for Jews of any denomination. This book can be the starting point for many class discussions: what special foods each child eats on Shabbos, what color shirt each child wears, what special things they do, etc. The book is most suitable for babies and toddlers (ages 0-3), and is highly recommended to libraries which serve them.
